    Question

    I started my own pond for tadpoles awhile ago and i wanted to share some pics of how they're coming along

    This guy has been with me for awhile and is doing great! He's a Leopard Frog.

    Now onto the tadpoles! It's hard to see but this first guy has legs in the back

    There's all different sizes, I will have to seperate them soon so the big ones don't eat the small ones,

    Here's my pond, it's cloudy at the moment, usually it looks much nicer.

    This is my big pond with about 8 different frogs and 2 large goldfish (that's why I took the tadpoles out, so the fish won't eat them)

    Here is one of the smaller Bull Frogs in my big pond

    The last time I did this (a few months ago) that small Bull Frog's brother/sister jumped into my little pond and ate all my tadpoles! He died a few days after that, it was weird

    Here are some random pics of my tadpoles in the past.

    LOL, no. I have a few in there. They're some sort of Palm and I stuck them in there to root, then I'm going to plant them.

    Oh that, I don't know what it's called, but it spreads like a weed. I'll have to ask my boyfriend what that is, the tadpoles love it though.

    aww they are being man handled!

    when they get big enough do they have some land to get out on if they want to so they dont tire them selfs out from swiming?

    Yup they do now I usually put some driftwood in there when they get their legs (which is now) So they're good
    Is being man handled bad? Also I'm going to put them back in the big pond when they're ready, I just didn't want the fish to eat them while they were small like this
